I got an email too. Looks like I ordered Jojo Rabbit 4K just in time.


Care to share your friends 😁
There are forum members on here from Australia. It is mutually beneficial for both parties to pick up titles for each other.
The same goes with the USA.
In fact yesterday I befriended another Australian on Twitter whilst talking about a release on mvm.

Yep, my Emma Kickstarter is (slowly) on it's way to me. I have all kinds of orders from Rightstuf and AOL out there lost in the massive COVID/Christmas backup somewhere, some sitting for 10+ days at different mail hubs, so who knows when it will finally arrive. I kind of wish Rightstuf would have just waited until sometime after the new year to ship Emma out, so there would have been less chance for it to get lost or damaged with the huge mail backlog we have right now.

Good to know, thanks. Whenever I import anime, I always end up defaulting to the US and forget to check if Australia has a better option, which is weird because I bought a bunch of Madman DVDs years ago when I was filling in the gaps in my Godzilla collection. Fortunately I've only bought Sailor Moon R from the US versions so far.

I got lucky and purchased the four DVD sets for Nana less than a week before set 2 went OOP about 5 years ago, but to have it on Blu-ray, even as a decent upscale, would be great - and a Premium Edition set would be awesome!

Looks like Sentai has acquired the rights to the 2006 series Nana from studio Madhouse after it was spotted being among the trailers available on the Girls und Panzer Anzio Battle 2021 re-release.


Nana was released by Viz Media many years ago and is one of those titles that had yet to be re-released ever since.

The trailer does not seem to be on any of the other December or January Sentai releases, so hopefully it's not just a mistake on only this menu... Fingers crossed!

I'd say that the chances of them accidentally including the trailer to a show they don't have is basically zero. So they have Nana, that's pretty much certain. It's really just a question of when they release it at this point, not if. The fact that we've seen a trailer for it (when we haven't for, say, Kaiji) suggests it could be coming sooner rather than later.
